„Balkan Konsulat“ is the title of an exhibition project, which took place in Graz from October 2002 to November 2003. < rotor > invited curators from six cities - Belgrade, St. Petersburg (special guest), Prague, Istanbul, Budapest, Sarajevo - to successively formulate a specific view on the respective scenes and at the same time critically question various notions of the Balkans. Apart from the exhibitions in the former < rotor > space, a film program and a music line-up, the cooperation with museum in progress facilitated the production of billboards for the public space. For every show, the curators nominated two artists, showing a total of 12 billboards throughout the year: at the façade of the theatre of Graz (Schauspielhaus).
